Wishing Trees is an ancient Chinese tradition which is synonymous with luck and good fortune. Legend has it
that if we hang our hopes for the coming year on Wishing Trees, it will encourage your dreams to come true.
Well, we were not going to miss the chance of our hopes becoming real in 2016!
Off we went to Glasshouse Street Square, on a blustery cold Sunday morning to stand in line for our turn –to have our names written by Chinese calligraphers on red paper (the colour red represents good luck for Chinese), That’s my name translated into Chinese phonetically
The pieces of red paper were then put into red “ang pows” and were hung on the Wishing Tree.And for even more good luck, we got chocolate coins in “ang pows” Lucky Mummy – she gets to eat ours since we can’t! Gosh! Her luck has already begun – minutes after we’ve hung our names on the Wishing Tree.
George: I hope that many more stray dogs will find their way to homes where they will know that life is not about scavenging for food and fighting off other dogs for survival.
